Abstract

There are concerns that ethnic minority patients are over-represented in inpatient mental health settings, but under-utilise community services. This study aims to compare the use of community mental health services between African-Caribbean and White patients with psychosis, before and after the introduction of new community services, and to investigate their impact on inpatient treatment.
